His father works along the train track.
Wonders to himself about the way things could have been.
Regrets the lessons that he taught his children.
Like how to shoot a gun and chase a Mexican.
The things you took for granted watch them slip right through our fingers.
Sits and tries to write a letter.
Send some life to a life inside,
Righteous words are the devil's pride.
Things are fine. Yeah, they could be better.
Your boy said he wants to see his dad.
I didn't write these words just to make you sad.
